Since her father died, Kate Sweeting’s home life has been in the pits, her well-being on life support. Her future looks desolate until she and her mother, Cara, make another plan: abandon their shriveled existence for more promising prospects on the coast, where Cara can play small-town librarian-bachelorette and Kate can figure out what’s up with that secretive Blake family from the beach.
Everyone is eerily captivated with Kate and her mother, and Cara is the first to figure out why when the man of her dreams arrives all dripping and devoted and closed-mouthed about what he intends. Kate is willing to go along with their subterfuge for a while, but eventually makes a charge for the water to learn what her mother is hiding. Gabe Blake is there waiting for her…and so is someone considerably less friendly. By the time Kate navigates her way home, everything will have changed for her—what she feels, what she wants, and what she’ll risk to be with the man she loves.

“Captivating & refreshing”
Five Star Review on Amazon By A. D.
Updrift is a beautifully written feel-good tale that is believable, yet fantastic. I rarely read romance novels and fantasy romance novels are even harder to come by on my reading list, however my husband surprised me with this book for Christmas and I now regard Updrift as one of my favorite gifts this year! I dug right in and soon discovered its charm and found it quite difficult to put down. I hold Errin personally responsible for several sleepy days after staying up too late devouring this delicious tale. I was delighted with the rich details used to describe scenes and characters and the abundance of juicy words used in just the right context, which takes a certain flair to do well! Updrift is a refreshingly original story and I surprisingly found no holes to poke in the rules Errin has constructed for the unique world that comes to life throughout the book (and I pride myself on being a master hole poker!). It’s rare for me to find a book with the right mix of humor to make me chuckle while reading, but again, Errin nailed it – just the right smattering of quirky humor. I am left with a warm, happy feeling after reading this book and am looking forward to reading the second book in the series, Breakwater.
